Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off Eagles

December 22, 2008 -

Sunday was a tough day for Eagles fans (like yours truly).

The Washington Redskins stymied the Eagles' offense all day long and led 10-3 late in the fourth quarter. As the final seconds ticked off the clock, Eagles receiver Reggie Brown was stuffed at the goal line by a pair of Washington defenders.

And what song was blaring over the public address system at Washington's Fedex Field?

Oh No You Didn't.

The Wojahn Brothers tune is the theme for EA's hit Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.

Cinema Blend, which picked up on the use of the Mercs 2 song, reports:

It's a tough song to describe; essentially it's a rap with piano accompaniment and a choir-style chorus. Somehow, all of these strange elements come together into a catchy masterpiece... it's pretty awesome that a song created for a video game's gotten this sort of mainstream attention.

Ah, if only I took an interest in American Football. Or sport in general.

So I DID hear that song!

I'm a big Giants fan myself but even I felt the "ouch" of that one play (the one where the Eagles caught the ball and just missed the goal line).

Full O' Win.

Sons of Washington, FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

Goddamn right.

Now if only they hadn't choked the previous 5 games.

I mean really.  Cincinatti??  Come on...

Re: Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off

Nah, a violent game wouldn't upset the Football crowd. Now if there was even a hint of nudity in it, then everyone would be up in arms. Superbowl 38 anyone?

I've heard it a couple of times at the end of games (can't remember which) when it's close and the home team pulls out a win. 

Great song!

They also played it at the Linc during the Pittsburgh game. They made a big stop and then it came on. I laughed my ass off.

Re: Oh No You Didn't: Mercs 2 Song Plays as Skins Hold Off

At least the Saints whipped the Lions yesterday 42-7, knocking Detroit to 0-15.

Now the Eagles have to beat Dallas next week and have Tampa Bay lose to Oakland to make the playoffs.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

MonteIf you don't like someone's commentary; simply ignore them. Do not give them ANY kind of attention; even negative attention gives them traffic. If they're wrong and their opinions cant stand on their own merits, they will simply fade away into obscurity.02/01/2015 - 1:17pm
IanCBut of course no one on the GG side has been harassed. Nope. None at all. BS. Both sides are acting like children. No, I take that back, CHILDREN are better behaved.02/01/2015 - 12:25pm
MechaTama31Of course, that advice is only really useful if you are one of the harassers...02/01/2015 - 11:50am
prh99Maybe it's time to rethink your strategy if your enemy doesn't have to make stuff up.02/01/2015 - 5:01am
prh99Also if you don't like someone, harassment and scandals will only get them more attention. Zoe Quinn would probably not be as well known if not for various harassers.02/01/2015 - 5:00am
prh99Personally, I just clicked the three vertical dots the first YouTube recommended one, haven't seen one since. Too bad I can't get rid of Pewdiepie video recommendations that easily.02/01/2015 - 3:19am
prh99Just don't watch the videos, who cares what she does or doesn't do. If her audience likes it so be, if they think she's doing something she shouldn't they'll stop watching.02/01/2015 - 3:14am

Andrew EisenThank goodness the Shout box now goes back 100 shouts, eh folks?01/31/2015 - 7:10pm
Wonderkarpyouve said youre stuff. I gave you a point on one thing.01/31/2015 - 7:04pm
Andrew EisenNo, they're facts. Not beliefs. Not opinions. Facts. Do I need to list them all for you again? I'm happy to oblige.01/31/2015 - 7:02pm
Andrew EisenAnd I have seen no evidence (and would find it very hard to believe) that her fans and funders, even the most radical, would be the ones perpetuating that nonsense.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Wonderkarpabout as right as Glenn Beck is about the gays, man. Its all your beliefs and opinions.01/31/2015 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenI didn't say you did. And this talking head is still right about everything he's said so far.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
Andrew EisenAlso, considering the number of non profits that merchandise, I'm going to guess you're wrong on that one too but I don't really know as it's not my area of expertise.01/31/2015 - 6:58pm
